Ines de la Fressange's personal style is chic yet relaxed in every situation. While a navy-and- white striped nautical top with slim, cropped jeans and flats is a classic French look, it's harder to pinpoint how Parisians unfailingly blend elegance and allure with such ease. In this sequel to her best seller Parisian Chic , the world's favorite style icon demonstrates how to achieve her quintessentially Parisian look. Her style secrets start with the building blocks of her wardrobe staples-an LBD that can be dressed up or down, timeless riding boots you'll wear for a lifetime, or the perfect pair of jeans. She combines these staples with panache to suit every situation, adding seasonal items like costume bangles, a top in this season's on-trend color, or the right shade of lip color. This brand-new book is essential reading and offers easy-to-recreate looks that will transform your style.
